Vent SC blow-off valve through side vents?

So I noticed in a video of Active Autowerke's supercharger the air emitted from the BOV is visible (condensation?), and was thinking it might look incredibly awesome to route it through the M3's (non-functional?) side vents.

Discuss.

After routing it, it would probably not be visible any longer because the pressure would dissipate in route thus reducing the condensation.

Not to mention, it would look kinda dumb

Meh, I think it would look cool. Perhaps a little ricey (like the Skyline in 2Fast2Furious...
and yes I realize that's fake, it won't be that much vapor), but still pretty badass.

I think if the tubing is sufficiently narrow and short enough the pressure won't be reduced much.

They vent to atmosphere rather than recirculate? I guess without a MAF recirculating isn't needed.

I'm no expert but I think there are a number of factors. I've hear centrifugal superchargers work better with BOVs. Also the AA kit has both a BOV and bypass valve.

The stuff you see in fast & furious can't be used to judge in the real world, it's only Hollywood. With that being said, the stuff that shoots out from the Skyline is nitrous, you get that effect when you purge the system.

That wasn't fake. He didn't route the BOV out the side, he was purging the nitrous in the lines.

It depends on what the computer is looking for. On a car with a DV then yes, it'll screw things up.
